SEMINAR
Critical Mass Governance: Managing U.S. Participation in Environmental Multilateralism
Monday, 24 November 2014 at 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Forestry Room 102, Forestry Building 48, Linnaeus Way, ANU
The most pressing question for international environmental efforts is one that has plagued the Kyoto Protocol and countless other treaties: how do we conduct effective environmental multilateralism without the leadership, or even participation, of the United States? This thesis will explore this dilemma through case studies of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the 2015 climate agreement, and the creation of a World Environment Organisation. Two different governance models that address US participation and ratification, and an underlying theory of 'Critical Mass Governance', are developed as potential ways forward. In a world of rising powers, US leadership may no longer be necessary. Instead, perhaps all that is needed is a critical mass of willing countries. About the speaker Luke is a final year PhD student at the Fenner School of Environment and Society (ANU), a research fellow with the Earth System Governance Project and a research associate with the Free University of Berlin. Luke holds a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (Honours, First Class) from the ANU and is a regular media commentator on climate negotiations for The Conversation and other outlets.
